I gave them an exam a few nights ago, and- as always- I said to them: "Good luck and have fun!" I immediately heard a giggle. One of the students looked at me and said "Starcraft?" I smiled and nodded, and he started his exam.
As the students started finishing and handing in their exams to me, the kid walks up to my desk and says, "GG Professor". I chuckle and ask him if he follows the professional scene.

"Oh really?" I asked him. "Which players did you used to follow?"
What a pity it is that this kid is going to automatically fail my class.
We talked a bit more about StarCraft, despite him clearly being a scrub. I was wondering how he could ever make me like him after he admitted to liking Stephano.
"Hey Professor, you kinda remind me of Day. You're all mathy and nerdy- in a cool way- just like him."
What a pity it is that this kid is going to automatically ace my class.
